The sky is turning a deeper shade of blue, the air in the mornings is getting crisp, and soon the leaves will begin to
fall. Everyone is pulling out their sweaters and hiking boots, grabbing that last moment outside without piles of
winter clothes on, and getting the fireplace tuned up for another chilly season. Autumn is approaching. This
challenge is all about capturing the atmosphere by creating a Sim, attiring them for fall, and presenting them in a way that
evokes an impression of autumn.
If you live in an area of the world where autumn does not occur this is a theme of
umber, russet, orange and gold. Deep blue skies, living it up outdoors, contemplation, seasons changing, and time passing round out the mood. It's
about capturing an elusive wonderful moment in warm colors before winter sets in.
1. Submit one picture per entry. You can post two different entries. There is no requirement for the picture size or
shape but something in the neighborhood of 800 pixels wide works well in the forum.
2. Use any custom content you have. Take a picture of your Sim and use a custom pose if you want to.
The Sim's picture should not be photoshopped. Place the Sim on a background. Here are some examples:
3. Ignore the examples...you can make your background however you want. Your background can be plain white, it can be a photo, you can use
text, fabric, or your own artwork. You can do anything with the background that you want. If you want to photoshop the
background have at it...anything goes as long as it does not obscure the Sim or affect it in any way.
4. Each entry should consist of a single picture. If you want to introduce your Sim that's fine (although not
required) but please do not include laundry lists of the content used. If people would like to inquire about the
content used there is a WCIF thread for that HERE. Content lists will be removed so don't bother posting them.
The winner will be the entry that most successfully evokes the impression and mood of autumn. They will become the
new Studio Artist in Residence until the next challenge winner is announced. They will also win a badge that will appear underneath
their avatar and on their profile page. The judges are Sweetsorrowsims and Laracroftfan1.
There is a participation trinket made by Untraditionalnerd (with added textures by OM) for everyone who enters:
The challenge starts today and will end in two weeks on October 5 at 10 pm EST. To enter just post your picture in this thread. If you would like to comment on another person's entry please use the comment box...new posts should only be made for a challenge entry.
